        America and Alfred Stieglitz: A Collective Portrait

      Doubleday, Doran, New York 1934 - First edition, stated. Very good in a good unclipped dust jacket, with the jacket showing light to moderate edgewear, shallow chipping; tape repairs to the upper front panel, rear flap detatched but present. Boards show light soiling. This copy inscribed and signed on the front free endpaper by contributor William Carlos Williams to Katherine Johns, whom Williams employed as a typist and informal secretary; in his Autobiography, Williams refers to her work on his manuscripts for In The American Grain and Voyage to Pagany, among other works. It's possible that Johns worked on the manuscript for Williams's contribution to this volume as well, although there is no firm evidence for that supposition. If there were, we'd up the price. In any event, a solid copy of the much less common trade edition, signed by an important contributor, with a nice association. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        D'Aci i d'Allà [1934 Christmas Issue], Containing Figures davant el mar

      np, Llibreria, Catalonia 1934 - FIRST EDITION, with the EXTREMELY RARE AND SOUGHT-AFTER POCHOIR BY MIRÓ (From Here and There: Figures by the Sea); one of only five pochoirs created in his career. "After their first encounter, Miró and [the architect] Sert continued to meet often through the group of painters, sculptors, and art critics of the cultural group known as ADLAN (1932-1936)." Through the joint efforts of ADLAN and GATCPAC, a group of architects active from 1930 to 1936, came "the most representative publication of that period: a special issue of the magazine D'Aci i d'Allà focusing on twentieth-century art-the 1934 Christmas issue-directly supervised by Joan Prats and Josep Lluís Sert and with the participation of Joan Miró, in the first instance of a collaboration between the artist and the architect ? The result of this joint effort was far more than a mere revision of contemporary visual arts; it became a guidebook to the new trends and to the avant-garde aesthetic, providing information both about the art world and about the latest advances in the fields of housing and construction. Joan Miró was the main protagonist of the issue of D'Aci i d'Allà directed by Sert, once again being praised as a contemporary primitive. In designing the cover and the famous pochoir specifically created for this issue, Miró managed to convey the greatest expressive force with minimal resources, using only red, yellow, and black against the white paper background" (Vecchierini, 46-48). The most sought-after issue of this Spanish magazine, which contains an hors texte colour pochoir plate by Joan Miró (Figures davant el mar), printed in yellow, red, and black. There are also texts by C. Soldevila, L. Fernández, C. Zervos, J. L. Sert, J.V. Foix, C. Sindreu, M.A. Cassanyes, A. Jakovsky, and S. Gasch. Cramer 11. Barcelona: Llibreria Catalonia, 1934. Size: 330 x 280 mm (approx. 13 x 11 inches). Spiral bound in original illustrated wrappers. With original subscription form laid in. Very light wear to wrappers. Pochoir pristine. A remarkably well-preserved copy of a notoriously rare and fragile work. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Autograph letter signed.

      Küsnacht, 2. XI. 1934.. Large 4to. 2 pp.. In German, to Hedwig Fischer, widow of Samuel Fischer who was Mann's publisher, on his name-imprinted stationery. He writes in part: "I just want to send you a greeting, nothing more. Hardly a day has gone by since we got the death notification in Basel, after the return trip from Lugano, without our speaking of you and your husband, and the shock that we felt at the time continues to reverberate and will for a long time. One had to be braced for this farewell, indeed, ultimately one almost had to be for it; and yet I cannot say how it moved me when it became reality. Nearly four decades of cooperation! I was very attached to the deceased. There was a placid cordiality between us, the way I have rarely experienced it in relationships with people, and hardly ever was there a superficial clouding or disgruntlement. Our characters were compatible, and I always felt that I was the born author for him and he my born publisher. I hinted at some of this in the memorial article, which probably came to your attention in the Sunday supplement of the Basler Nachrichten. It is indeed strange the way I rein in my feelings on such occasions, involuntarily suppressing them and growing cold for the sake of psychology and characterization. I'm just not a poet, but must resort to objectivity and distancing. I wouldn't be surprised if this were painful to you in this case. I am myself more satisfied with the two short pages I sent even now for the [Deutsche] Rundschau's memorial issue for [Peter] Suhrkarnp. May this issue turn out to be a very beautiful monument! From Reisiger, who will be coming to visit us in a few days, we heard that the end was gentle and without consciousness. That's fine and well. And you? How has your heart taken the separation? When one has been living side by side for so long and has shared everything! As soon as one starts thinking about life, the tears start to come. Your publishing house has brought out many beautiful and interesting things recently. Extremely interesting the book on Charlemagne. Döblin is planning an essay on it for the Sammlung, I hear, although emigrants otherwise don't like to mention German books, i.e., published in Germany. But what I read from start to finish and with quite unusual interest, was [Martin] Gumpert's Hahnemann, a life I knew hardly anything about and which in this presentation moved me deeply. Farewell, and be comforted! Give my regards to your children and grandchildren, and regards to you".

        The Desire and Pursuit of the Whole

      London: Cassell and Company, Limited,, 1934. A Romance of Modern Venice... With an Introduction by A. J. A. Symons. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered green on gilt panel, top edges green. With the dust jacket. Jacket spine toned, a little foxing to front and back panels, spine of binding dulled and slightly rolled, but a very good copy with the elusive dust jacket. First edition, first impression: 2,020 copies were printed. Presentation copy, inscribed by the editor on the front free endpaper: "Frank, with all good wishes for Christmas from A. J., Dec. 1934". We have been unable to establish who "Frank" was but he must have been an acquaintance as ODNB point out that "[Symons's] friends commonly called him AJ". A.J.A. Symons (1900-1941), book collector and writer, will always be associated with Baron Corvo through his biography The Quest for Corvo (1933), "a brilliantly evocative account of how he established the facts surrounding the life and literary career of Baron Corvo (Frederick Rolfe), the eccentric homosexual writer" (ODNB).

        Typed letter signed in full to the noted American band composer and leader Edwin Franko Goldman

      1/2 page, single-spaced. Large octavo, 266 x 184 mm. Dated Brookline, Massachusetts, January 31, 1934. With Schoenberg's name and address handstamped at upper left corner. In English. Schoenberg comments about a commissioned translation, by Goldman, of a text he had originally written in German. He is not quite satisfied with Goldman's work and requests a new translation: "Dear Mr. Goldman, you find enclosed the translation you have send [!] me with your letter of January 29th. There you find also some marginal notes where I have signed some of the parts of the translation, by which I cannot be satisfied... I understand your intention in translating my words and I can well appreciate it. Surely it would be of a great advantage if all I have written could be said in such a manner that everybody can conceive it. But surely also: The thought would loose [!] so much of its dep[th] and of its prospect, that I am forced to renounce another succes[s] of my word, than an [in?]adequate- one..." Manuscript annotation to upper right corner in an unknown hand (?Goldman's): "Ans." [?Answer]. Slightly browned and stained; creased at folds; hinged at upper edge with archival tape. . Edwin Franko Goldman (1878-1956) was a band composer and bandleader living in New York. The letter inadvertently testifies to the newly-immigrated Schoenberg's struggle with the English language, but also to Schoenberg's uncompromising nature. In the end, Goldman decided to publish Schoenberg's article in German. See Schoenberg's letter to Goldman, February 3, 1934, published in Arnold Schoenberg: Sämtliche Werke Edited by Rudolf Stephan, Section IV: Orchestral Works. Series B, Volume 13, (Mainz: B.

        The Free Fishers, in Chambers's Journal. [7 Parts, first appearance]

      London: W. and R. Cahmbers. 1934, 1934. First magazine issue publication of Buchan's The Free Fishers, published in Chambers Journal between January and July 1934. Publisher's decorated orange paper wraps. Bright and clean, minor edgewear, very good indeed with some very minor chipping to spine ends and edges. A very bright clean set. In addition to the Buchan there's the usual smattering of adventure fiction, articles on Oyster Culture in Scotland, how to secure Australia against the Dingo menace and a blizzard of advertisments for pipe tobacco, support garments, catarrh cures and the treatment of mental health issues vying for place with cases of thin wine biscuits and a "useful folding cake stand". Splendid stuff, scarce in periodical form and even scarcer in this splendid condition.

        An Illustrated life of Confucius. Late Qing woodblock Edition Kong zi sheng ji Tu

      Peiping Civil Press. N. D. [1934?] - SHENGJI TU. (Illustrated Scenes from the Life of the Sage, Confucius). 30x40 cm. chinese tex,t, maps, illustrations, portraits + 105 woodblock prints depicting the life of confucius, in the original chinese sewn binding. protected in later chinese style blue cloth box, with straps and ivory needles. a very good copy. scarce.A recent article by Chun Shum in the 'East Asian Library Journal' (Vol. 10, no. 1) provides a wealth of information on what amounts to an exemplary sub-genre of Chinese illustrated book production. In fact, scenes from the life of the Confucius are, arguably, at the fountainhead of book illustration in China. Illustrations of Confucius' life exist in three media: as paintings, engraved on stone (typically reproduced in collections of rubbings), and as woodblock printed editions. The earliest painted version were probably produced in during the Eastern Han period; three sets of stone engravings are said to exist; and there have been many woodcut editions of the Sage's illustrated life. The earliest printed versions are thought to date to the 13th century, but no such Song editions survive. There are several Ming editions. The quality of the illustrations and of the prints differ greatly. This one is taken fromt blocks that appear to be the best we have seeen.The present work is a late Qing edition, most likely a later printing from the blocks prepared by Kong Xianlan in 1874. This edition is noted and described in Chun Shum's article (pp. 153-55), and the sample illustration reproduced matches the corresponding images in the present work. All 105 images collated by Chun Shum are present, along with the introductory text taken from the biography of Confucius in the 'Shiji'. Quality of paper and printing indicate that this may be a somewhat later impression from Kong's blocks, impossible to date precisely. the impressions are clear and the book is a rich source of the visual imagery - based on earlier, Ming model - produced at the time. Scanned samples available on request.

A very scarce Oz title, this is one of very few known copies containing the original waddle figures: Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Lion, and the Wizard.
